I am in two minds about downloading the demo because I have pre-ordered the game and want to see all the new features and secrets when I play the full game, the demo only lasts 6 months so i dont want to be hooked on the demo even though I am sure I can carry it over into the full game. Having said that I can't wait to play the game so dont know if I can resist the temptation.
Will you download the demo or wait for the full game to arrive?

I'll download, simply to see if I want to buy the full game or not.

I'll definitley download the demo.

Probably watch the full 90mins of every match in 3D so by the time the demo has finished the game will be out.

I'll wait for the full game to come out, it'll only be a couple of weeks or so from demo to game release. :)

When the six months runs out, save the game. When the full game is installed you can continue your saved game if you really want to.

Can't wait to see new features and changes in players stat and database.
Hope that Spanish player are not so overrated though. :D

Actually it would be good to start a couple of games and see which one you'd enjoy continuing the most on the full game.

Note to self: Don't offer to buy anyone on clauses such as paying 30m over 24months or 30m after 30 matches knowing I'll be continuing that game. :o

I always download the demo and test it out to see if it is worth purchasing. I don't see why it would be a bad decision to try the demo first before pre-ordering or purchasing the game. I personall like to try a product if possible before purchasing it.

Always download the demo. Then you won't have wasted 30 if you don't like the game.

I always use the demo as a chance to create and test my tactics before starting a proper game when it is released. I know I'm always going to buy it, so the demo for me is just a chance to get a headstart tactically.

This will be the first year I won't download the demo. Basically because I know for certain that I'll love 09 anyway. The only bad thing is mates saying "Ah! it's brilliant, download it" that might tempt me but I'm determined to keep my promise. Anyway, I've pre-ordered it anyway so I can't exactly not buy it now.

It is a football managerial game so people already know if they will like it or not especially as the series has been going on for about 16 years. 6 months is not enough to see how bugged the game is or how well the features work because a lot of features or bugs are spotted after a season or two.

I download only to have a look at the game and how it works. I never actually play it (seriously) though, if that makes sense.

Won't be downloading the demo. Already have the game on pre-order so will just play other game's until release.

Its not been oficially announced yet. However, since the game comes out on 14th November I would say that some time during the last week of October would be a reasonable guess.

I'll be playing the demo just because I'm far too impatient to wait a couple extra weeks for my dose of FM09

Not like the game??? I know FM2008 was poor in most peoples opinion but I still liked it. I've pre-ordered FM2009 because I know I will like it since it will be a massive improvement over FM2008 even if they haven't fixed the confidence bug (that was a joke btw!).

But what if it's really buggy, the ME is terrible and the 3D representation is worse? Then you've got a bad game.

I think the game will be good, but I'd rather get the demo, just in case.

I will play the demo but wont copy the save over, theres no point where there will probably be a patch on release day (meaning its best to start a new game) and the demo will be with a small database.

Whs. I also use it to start off as a Premiership team, which I'd never do for a long-term game.

FM can never be bad,and i mean it.There may be times,when you lose interest in it,but you'll still love that game

This year is a little different as there is competition on the market for it.

FM Live is looking pretty good at the moment and signed up for it for initial release in October.

FM Live/FM09??

Theres only one GV!
21-09-2008, 08:02
I will definatley get demo, I am like a little kid when the demo comes out download it straight away and play it for ages. I can't play fm2008 once the demo is out, i'll be playing it and thinking i want 3d graphics, press conferences and a bit of help from my ass man!

Ill be downloading the demo for sure.

It will ease the waiting time for the actual game to be released.

The demo does need ot hurry up though.

I still don't know why you won't download the demo. I am curious about the game and want to see what it's like asap, therefore I need to download the demo. The majority of people will download the demo and I have serious doubts about the blabla of people who say they won't. When the time is there who can resist? The server will go down anyway ;)

My computer at home is laggy! when I play fm 08, it lag a lot. So I will be downloading the demo, and try the game. If it is good, I will then buy the full game and a new laptop!

Of Course downloading the demo, it gives me a bigger taste as to whats coming more than the stuff we have already seen through Miles etc.

PGB_SPURS_FM09
22-10-2008, 10:47
Definitely! As other have said will give the opportunity to see players, try out tactics, see 3D, will it run on my laptop, what young south americans i can find. Test the team and look at stats of what you plan to do when full game is out. I do like the idea of waiting for the full release to see the new features etc because it would be more fun but i just woulnd't be able to resist the demo knowing its there and i doubt many others would be able too!

mark.e.t
22-10-2008, 18:30
definately will down load it, i use it to get used to any new features before i start a real , serious game!

YesYesOhYay
22-10-2008, 18:41
download it to see how good it is gonna be, look at the new features and look for the gem players. like stancu on 08 etc.

CHARLIERODD
22-10-2008, 18:43
Yeah i'd say it would be, hopefully there won't be that bug which means your game can't be continued properly though.

If FM08 worked 09 should work aswell but you may not be able to use 3D!
